We know it is no fun to wear a mask while enjoying a night out, but our staff's safety is no laughing matter.
We require all guests to wear a mask while moving about the restaurant, and when speaking to Clyde's employees.
Masks have been a hot topic, with passionate views on all sides. With our team and their families' health at stake, we must err on the side of caution. We hope you will understand and look forward to the day, hopefully soon, when we can all throw our masks in the trash.

Guest Temperature Checks are required upon entry.

Having dined at this Clyde's numerous times, we were surprised that our recent visit was very disappointing. We were greeted and promptly seated by a friendly hostess. However, we waited over 10 minutes to be greeted by our server, and our drinks took an exceedingly long time - this was not a busy time for a late lunch on a Sunday (2PM). Our appetizers came out with good timing and were very good (crab dip & wings) However, our lunch was poorly made, our draft beers flat... we were over it and our lunch at this point. Hoping this was just a miss on Clyde's part and of course we will be back.

I wonder why open table is not giving me credit for this reservation. Do you have any information on this?

Excellent brunch - waiter was very friendly and everything felt very COVID safe outdoors. Some of the best chicken and biscuits I’ve ever had.

I had to take my salmon back and get wing instead because it was nasty. The waitress took my change from my bill without asking if the change was for her.

We sat outside which was nice. The server was switched to inside service. She came by the table when she could but would have liked to see her a little bit more often at the end. Lobster was nice.

On arrival we learned that Open Table had cancelled my reservation! Something is WRONG with your system!

We were promptly seated since the restaurant was not very busy at 6:00. If it had been as busy as it was 1 year ago, it would have been a real problem!

Went for the annual lobster dinner special. Parking was next to restaurant and easy to use. Lobster was excellent and cooked to perfection. Wine was good also. I would rate this restaurant as moderately priced.

How disappointing. We drove all the way from Mclean to have oysters and lobsters for lunch. The oysters were full of shell (mist unpleasant) and they gave us a single small piece of lemon for a dozen. The lobsters were rubbery and cold having taken half an hour to get to us. The spinach substitution for fries for one of us was cold and watery and two spoons worth. Service was poor and inattentive.

Lunch on the patio with friends. Comfortable and far enough from Wisconsin Ave to be relatively quiet. The food was very good. My only complaint (which is minor) is that our server could have paid more attention to us.

My friend and I were seated outside as requested and there were only a few other tables occupied. It was ten minutes before a waiter came over and we had to ask for menus. We ordered a glass of wine and it was another fifteen minuted before it arrived! Were ordered lunch and it was a twenty minute wait! Asked for the check and waited another ten minutes. The waiter was very lackadaisical and lacked any customer focus skills. The poor service detracted from what could have been a nice venture out.

Thought everything was meh except the crab cakes which were delicious. Ordered the hot and toddy which sounded perfect for a chilly night. It arrived lukewarm. Asked to have it reheated after our waitress disappeared for 10 minutes. Asked to have sweet potato fries with my crab cakes—it arrived with regular fries. Sent that back. By the time the correct order came back the crab cakes were cold. I was so hungry by then I just ate them. It’s a shame—Clydes has been in the neighborhood for a while and was always our go to.

Dining out during a pandemic is a special treat that is done very sparingly because of the risks. Unfortunately our recent dinner experience at Clydes did not justify the risk we took.

Food quality was not the same Clydes (we were pre-pandemic regulars). Shrimp pasta was mediocre and the burger was very forgettable. What a shame.

Service was pathetic when the waiter forgot our wine and the main course was served within minutes of our salad (we told him we want them spaced out), even before we had a chance to take a bite! I asked for mustard to go with my fries, no mustard came. Waiter did not seem to know much about the menu nor pricing (eg price for small Ceasar salad or substituting fries with sweet potato fries) and not offering to check. Waiter needs better training.

Best part of the evening was the ambience .. charming outdoor seating.

Portions are smaller now. The crab & artichoke dip is still good. But the lobster in the Shepherd's Pie was undercooked and rubbery.
